Ford Posts Strong Third-Quarter Earnings, Sees 2020 Profit
(Bloomberg) -- Ford Motor Co., riding a wave of momentum from new models and new management, handily beat expectations with third-quarter earnings that outran the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic.Fueled by strong sales of pricey pickups, Ford posted adjusted earnings per share of 65 cents, well above the 19 cents analyst consensus forecast. Big profits in North America offset weakness overseas, allowing the company to revise its full-year forecast. It now expects to stay in the black this year, a reversal from an earlier outlook for its first annual loss in a decade.Ford's stock rose as much as 7.8% in postmarket trading after closing Wednesday at $7.70. The shares are down about 17% this year.The long-suffering automaker is enjoying a surge in sentiment since industry veteran Jim Farley became chief executive officer Oct. 1, replacing retiring Jim Hackett, to whom Wall Street never warmed. Intense and demanding, Farley is expected to jumpstart a turnaround that has been sputtering for years. The latest quarterly results help position the company to put the worst behind it.Ford said adjusted earnings before interest and taxes came to $3.6 billion in the quarter compared with $1.8 billion a year ago. Revenue in the quarter was $37.5 billion, above the $33.98 billion analysts anticipated.Unresolved IssuesFarley said the bullish performance belies underlying woes that need to be resolved before the carmaker can achieve its goal of sustainable profit margins above 10% in its core North American market."

Stock Market Today: Dow Drops 943 Points as Investors Storm the Exits
So much for the market's best day of the year. Oct. 28, on average the S&P 500's best-performing day over the past 70 years, was instead one of 2020's worst as COVID-19 concerns continued to flare up in the U.S. and Europe.

Cities such as Chicago and Newark are renewing restrictions on businesses and public gatherings amid not just record-high new caseloads in America, but rising hospitalizations and deaths as well. In Germany, restaurants and theaters will be shut down for four weeks, and other European countries are stepping up their own measures to fend off a second wave.
